Notwithstanding some minor engraving issues, I much prefer the balance of the second. The first is too high-contrast and light, especially when compared to the text font, and I think the time signature being larger than the staff only looks appropriate when hand-written.

I agree.

Both irritatingly 'quirky' I'm afraid. The '7' characters in the chord names are particularly annoying. And many chord symbols are aligned too far to the right.

Sorry.
